Safety is a core value at Valard

Valard considers the safety of its employees, contractors, neighbours, clients and the general public to be of prime importance.

 Our employees work on challenging terrain and drive millions of kilometers every year. Keeping people safe, day in and day out, is the, most important thing we do. Beyond all other pursuits, we keep a safe work environment. Because we insist on high safety and technical standards, Valard has one of the best safety records in the industry.  We're committed to providing a quality of workmanship second to none, as our track record shows.

  • Valard’s Health and Safety management system has been certified ISO 45001; we're the only 45001 certificate holder in the power line industry! ISO 45001 is an internationally recognized standard for occupational health and safety management systems. This standard means that Valard has a demonstrably sound occupational health and safety management system that has been certified by an independent auditor.
  • A Certificate of Recognition (COR) is awarded to employers who develop health and safety programs that meet established standards. A COR certificate shows that the employer's health and safety management system has been evaluated by a certified auditor and meets provincial standards. Valard’s systems are COR certified in many Canadian provinces and territories.
  • Valard is a proud supporter of the Canadian Registered Safety Professional (CRSP) designation. Many of our Health and Safety professionals have achieved this designation.

Drug and Alcohol Policy

The use of drugs or alcohol can impair a person’s judgment and lead to serious consequences on a construction site. Impaired individuals will not be tolerated on Valard Construction sites.  Individuals suspected to be under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs must be escorted out of the work area immediately and have the individual dealt with as dictated by following Valard’s Substance Abuse Program. Under the direction of the Executive VP of Health, Safety and Environment, the President and the Project Manager, the program is monitored, maintained and rigorously enforced.
